Got the floor opened all the way today. I choose to hole saw the drivers side to access the frame. It was alot easier. Good solid frame work. Nice job there. Bolts on the driver side already are rusted. Glad I choose the stainless steel. You can see the screws I used next to factory.

That looks real professional, though it WAS "professionals" who built it to the "factory standard".

Wouldn't you rather be called a "craftsman", anyway?

Nice work!

It's just unfortunate that you had to do it at all.

But at least it's RIGHT, now!

Again, nice!

Finished up the interior and exterior yesterday. Since we primarily use our camper for motocross racing 20+ weekends a year.I decided to use interlocking garage tiles for the cockpit. I have already replaced that crappy carpet in the lining area with the vinyl tiles u see in the photo. Just have a little trim work left to do.

Nice work! As a motocross family ourselves, I think a lot of people would cringe if they saw some of the places we have to drive these things! Maybe if we took somebody from FF with us it would help up some of the quality in certain places on motorhomes. Any more there are more motorhomes in the pits at motocross races then there are at the local KOA! All in all I don't have any huge complaints, the Sunseeker has been a workhorse!

We were on our way to Budds Creek national when this happened. We still managed to get there. And had a great weekend. Btw we also hit a car hood laying on the Balt/Washington beltway the same night. That ripped the enclosed trailer fender off. Never saw it again.

Great thread and very informative.
The photos really tell the story.
Thanks for sharing.

I'm wondering about the thread title--- just Alert doesn't do it
justice.
What should we call it so others will be able to find it when needed.

Georgetown wall to frame bolts sheared?
Something else??
Let's come up with an informative title and I'll edit to change it.

Thanks again for the photos. They really make this post worth reading!
